Malaysia says 'possibility' lost airliner turned back

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian authorities were looking into the "possibility" that an airliner which vanished with 239 people onboard had attempted to turn back, the country's air force chief said Sunday.

"One of the possibilities is that it was returning to Kuala Lumpur."
